My family history with Radio Flyer dates back to 1939 when my mom was a toddler, rockin' her sunglasses on a Sunshine Flyer! I have fond memories of my own little red wagon and Radio Flyer sled from my childhood. And now I'm a mom of two teens who grew up loving their multiple Radio Flyer toys. If you've got a fun history with Radio Flyer, they're collecting stories and photos!

Chicago-based Radio Flyer and critically-acclaimed Moonbot Studios have teamed up to produce the award-winning animated short film Taking Flight. The film is inspired by the life and heritage of Antonio Pasin, inventor of the beloved Little Red Wagon. In the fictional tribute, what begins as a small boy’s boring day with Grandpa turns into a larger-than-life journey of imaginative play. To-date, the film has received more than 14 awards and accolades from international and local film festivals.
We'll be ChiILin' with Radio Flyer’s Chief Wagon Officer Robert Pasin and award-winning director Brandon Oldenburg, CCO and partner of Moonbot Studios at this exclusive viewing party and Q&A in Radio Flyer’s hometown of Chicago (Chi, IL). Audiences in Chicago and nationwide are invited to tune in to a Facebook Live Event to watch the film that will provide fun for the whole family to enjoy together.
